But most shocking of all is the Ecoliner's ability to accept a rapid, overhead charge. Proterra equipped the Ecoliner with Altairnano cells that can accept the quickest of charges and the AeroVironment unit that transmits the juice can kick out 1,000 amps.
All this gear makes for an electric bus that can remain in operation for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As the 18-minute clip after the jump proves, not even deep water is capable of halting the Proterra Ecoliner. All aboard!
